McCabe Quits Ahead of FISA Memo

RUSH: Well, this is interesting. This happened right before we went to break and I didn't get a chance to catch it 'til we went to the break. The deputy FBI director, Andrew McCabe, has announced that he's resigning. Now, this is interesting timing. We can only speculate as to why, and the only thing I would speculate is that we are perhaps going to see this four-page memo that Devin Nunes has prepared that every member of Congress has seen. The House committee that Nunes chairs is voting today on whether to release the memo and make it public. And a lot of people think that the vote will call for making the memo public.

So McCabe now resigns. McCabe, his office is where Strzok and Page were discussing the insurance policy in case Trump happened to beat Hillary. The news about the politicization of the FBI and its leadership at least -- I don't know about the rank-and-file, but the leadership clearly interested in a protecting Hillary and not prosecute her, 'cause really that was about protecting Obama, now. I mean, it's no question that they were doing everything they could to make sure Hillary was not charged, not indicted, and everything they could do to see that she was elected. And Comey was in on that as well.

There's no doubt about that. The texts indicate that. Some people are saying, "That's a very rotten thing for you and people like you to be running around criticizing and ruining the reputation of the FBI. You ought to have more responsibility." It's not me doing it. I'm just reporting to you what we're learning here in the Strzok-Page texts. I'm not the one besmirching the FBI. They did that. And it was all about protecting Obama.

To protect Obama they had to protect Hillary because Obama lied about whether he knew she was using a classified server or a private server that was unsecured, sending classified information back and forth. And who knows what the hell else was going on there. So they had to protect her in order to protect Obama. So McCabe resigns on what may be the eve of the memo being released. I don't know if the two are related. Time will tell.

However, it's interesting. Trey Gowdy was on Fox News Sunday yesterday with Chris Wallace and he had a unique and novel way of telling everybody what's in this memo. Now, we know. Folks, you and I, we know. We're educated, informed, and aware. We know that what's in this memo, we know how devastating it is to the CIA -- well, the FBI and the Department of Justice. We know how devastating it is to perhaps the judge at the FISA court who was either in on the scam or might have been lied to and misled in order to issue the warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.

But we haven't seen it yet. And there haven't been any leaks. Can you believe that? Everything from the deep state has leaked countless times. This memo, 539, 540 people have seen it, if not more, and it has not leaked. Why do you think that is, Mr. Snerdley? Why has the memo not leaked? Because it does not hurt Trump. It is not unfavorable to Trump. That's why this memo has not leaked.

So Trey Gowdy, he doesn't want to leak it, and he doesn't want to divulge the contents. So he found a way to convey what might well be the contents. Chris Wallace said, "The Washington Post reports today the president wants to have the memo released. Do you agree with that, Congressman Gowdy?"

GOWDY: I do. If you think your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used, whether or not it's ever been vetted. If you're interested in who paid for the dossier, if you're interested in Christopher Steele's relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee, then yes, you'll want the memo to come out.

RUSH: Well, I think we were just told what's in the memo there. And I'm not being critical of Congressman Gowdy. We like Congressman Gowdy here. We have interviewed him for The Limbaugh Letter. He was very forthcoming. He's patriot. But he says, "If your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings." What he's saying is they went and got a FISA warrant based on that dossier. And that dossier's fake, it's made up, it's an opposition research document written and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

"If you want to know whether or not the dossier was vetted before it was used," meaning did they verify it. They didn't. They can't. There's nothing in it. Comey even said it's filled with salacious stuff that has not been corroborated or verified. They still used it. "If you're interested in who paid for the dossier." Well, we know that the Clinton campaign paid for it with a law firm cutout that sent the money to Fusion GPS and then on to Christopher Steele. So apparently that is in the memo. "If you're interested in Christopher Steele's relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee, then, yes, you'll want the memo to come out."

I can see why any number of people would think this is devastating stuff. That blows up the scam right there. So I think that's what Gowdy was doing. I could be dead wrong, too, but I think his method of, "If you're interested in this, yeah, you'd want the memo to come out."
